Episode 41: Is Dwayne Johnson a Bankable Actor?

When Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson jumped ship from wrestling to becoming a movie star with The Scorpion King, his future was bright with a surprising $91 million domestic gross. Fifteen years later and almost $3 billion worth at the box office domestically, Johnson is now considered one of the most bankable actors in Hollywood… but should he? Baywatch just flopped to a pathetic $18 million opening, so the question is, how bankable is he really? We discuss and debate this issue.
